SUBIC BAY Freeport--Employees of the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA) can still vividly recall the day 19 years ago when Subic welcomed 18 heads of state and proved to the world that it can host a prestigious event such as the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (Apec) summit meeting. Part of the preparation for the event was the construction of 18 luxury villas for the visiting Apec leaders that included US President Bill Clinton, and the building of a summit hall overlooking Subic Bay.
The year 1992 was hailed as the "Year of the Woman"--a moniker popularized in the wake of the election of a handful of powerful female senators. In other words, if in 1992 the focus was on the "ability to control," since then advocates for reproductive justice have increasingly asserted the centrality of what Casey describes as the ability "to participate in the economic and social life of the Nation."
In January 2000, President Bill Clinton boldly promised China's inclusion in the World Trade Organization (WTO) "is a good deal for America.

Hillary Rodham Clinton said Monday that hardline stances against admitting refugees to the United States are a mistake because they hurt law enforcement's ability to build ties within Muslim communities.

The Lied Center's seats were filled Monday with a buzzing audience that included 600 KU students, and its vaulted ceilings housed with them high expectations. "Human nature being what it is, it's a little bit of both.

(CBS News) Just weeks after the 100th anniversary of President Richard Nixon's birth, a new exhibit at his presidential library is raising eyebrows. That letter was the beginning of an unlikely union between the former Republican president and the newly elected Democratic chief executive.

For example, Bill Clinton was Governor of Arkansas for 12 years (1979-81 and 1983-1993). The bottom line--it is safe to say Hillary Clinton has spent approximately 35 years of her life with the benefit of armed security which, in some cases, would have included the advance security work of the Secret Service. Clinton wants to change current law to allow gun manufacturers to be sued by crime victims, and she wants gun stores to face a greater degree of regulation and oversight.
